Simple Prophecy

What does God want from me? That is the million dollar question.

Prophets of old were sent to prompt this self-examining question from within us. Back in the day, when God’s people started going wonky, a prophet would show up with words from the Lord to remind the tribe what God was expecting from them. God’s people had a habit of forgetting.

We still forget. And the million-and-one-dollar question is, “Do folks still ask what God requires of them?”


But I think, at times, when we DO ask, we get lost in the “do this, not that” tendencies of our faith. We forget to leave a little room for mystery. God's love is so elaborate, how can we fully conceive of how we are required to respond to Him?

That’s why I dig Micah.  He attempted to break this down and make it simple.

He has shown you, O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of YOU? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” (Micah 6:8)

I like simple.

Love the one in front of you. Start there.
